    Social Security Administration Now Using DLDV in 25 Jurisdictions

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) continues to roll out its online service that allows residents of U.S. jurisdictions to replace Social Security Number (SSN) cards from the comfort of their home or office, without the need to travel to a SSA office. SSA's internet-based Social Security Number Replacement Card (iSSNRC) program reduces the number of SSN replacement card requests in SSA field offices and card centers.  To increase security of the online application, the iSSNRC application requires verification of driver's license and identification card information through AAMVA's Driver License Data Verification (DLDV) service.  The iSSNRC program recently rolled out in Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts and Virginia, and is now available in twenty-five jurisdictions: AR, AZ, CA, DC, DE, FL, IA, ID, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MS, ND, NE, NM, PA, SD, TX, VA, WA and WI.  Five additional jurisdictions are in the process of coming onboard DLDV.  The benefit of the iSSNRC application is only available to residents in participating DLDV jurisdictions who have had contact with SSA since 1981.  Residents can check eligibility by opening their online mySSA account. To participate in DLDV, contact Philip Quinlan at AAMVA,703-908-2894.

    Internet Vehicle Sales Working Group Survey

    AMMVA's Internet Vehicle Sales Working Group is charged with developing best practices of the regulation of Internet sales and to provide recommendations and educational materials to member jurisdictions to identify, understand and combat fraud and deceptive Internet vehicle sales practices. One of the challenges the working group has faced is identifying the scope of issues surrounding the changing ways in which motor vehicles are sold and offered for sale on the Internet. The working group is conducting the first in a series of surveys to collect information from the jurisdictions. Please respond to the Internet Vehicle Sales Working Group Survey.  
    If you have any questions, please contact Cathie Curtis, Director, Vehicle Programs.
